Sirisco Character Analysis

Sirisco is Panfilo’s servant, whom Pampinea puts in charge of the brigata’s money as treasurer and purchaser of goods. In this capacity, he works under the instructions of Parmeno. His name, like the rest of the servants’, derives from classical Roman plays and indicates his servile status while also suggesting a timelessness to The Decameron.
